1048 : A (non-)idiot’s swan song

I was talking to someone yesterday and he made a very interesting point about “idiots”, which was …..

Never argue or indulge an idiot.
Because if you do, the idiot will invariably and assiduously try to drag you down to his (her) level of foolishness. Eventually (just a question of time), your descent will be complete.
At that point, there is no way you shall ever win over the idiot, because at the “current level”, lies his “circle of competence”, he excels at rabid foolishness…..in effect, you shall be fighting Mike Tyson with winter gloves on…..no way you can win NOW.
